Real Estate: Maryland/Lot Liens


Can a builder sell a lot with a water lien on it before the buyer purchase it?

I would not recommend making the purchase until this is resolved, and you may not be able to secure title insurance until this is resolved.  However, as long as full disclosure is given to all parties involved and the existence of the lien is  acknowledged and responsibility for its payment and resolution is accepted by the buyer, the title company closing the sale, may be able to get title insurance.
